Real Estate and Fishing what Hooks them together ?

A conversation with Carl Sack:  NH Lakes Region Realtor

Largemouth BassQ. What does fishing and selling your home have in common?

When heading out to the lake you take along all the tools of the trade; fishing pole, lures and fly's along with your boat and electronic fish finder.  Your goal is to quickly determine how deep the fish are and what they are biting so your day on the water is successful.  Selling your home is much the same, only the tools are different and instead of fish we are looking for buyers.  We take advantage of all proven techniques along with successful trade secrets that no fisherman will share.  We start with quality photography and a distinctive write-up of your home followed by a customized marketing plan which may include local newspapers and magazines but will always include the internet.  Our internet presence transcends what others offer. In fact it would equate to the most sophisticated fish finder on the market today that features GPS technology to sidebar sonar.

Q. So what is your secret to getting a home sold?

To continue with the fishing analogy; when I am out the lake I observe what types of activity I see on the water and match my lure or fly to that activity.  Most importantly I keep casting and changing until I find what the fish are biting.  Marketing a home is similar.  We fine tune the homes marketing to reach the ideal target buyer. By taking into account such property characteristics like demographics, lifestyle, and amenities we can tailor the marketing program to include various media partners in order to attract like-minded buyers. This may include one of our lifestyle specific global websites such as www.nhlakesrealty.com or a social media strategy utilizing Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, blogging, video tours and posting on global sites.  Unlike the random act of just throwing out a net, we cast directly to the demographic markets that match the lifestyle your home has to offer.  I would be happy to provide a complimentary analysis to anyone thinking of selling this year.

Squam Lake: Lakefront property buyers Guide New Hampshire

 Holderness, Sandwich, Ashland, Center Harbor, Moultonborough are surrounding towns.
Squam Lake is the second largest lake in New Hampshire  with a total area of over 6,700 acres. The 1981 film On Golden Pond  was filmed on Squam Lake and the Squam Lake Science Center is located in Holderness.  I have fond memories of the Squam Lake Science Center. Every year our family  would hike up Rattlesnake Mountain in Sandwich and then head over to the Squam Lake Science Center .  Salmon Fishing rocks on this lake ( big salmon ).   Unlike most of the lakes, Squam Lake is not home to a shoreline packed with cottages. You will find open shorelines with large family estates and an occasional Moose walking the shoreline.   A State Boat Ramp is located in Holderness next to the Science Center with easy access to Big Squam Lake and Little Squam.

 

Time to build memories with a lake home of your own!
